So I am a little late on this one. Yet it speaks to the heart. In celebration of All Soul’s Day and All Saint’s Day may we remember those who have touched our lives in a mighty way a led us closer to the Lord Jesus Christ and His saving grace.

Many Sunday Blessings,

transformed I have been so inundated with “things” this past year. I have never really settled into my new house – from the move two years ago – it is so sad. I have stopped doing everything I LOVED and that brought joy to my life. I have “held onto so much” {stuff} that I couldn’t breath anymore. But what is more is that I wasn’t [pleased]  pleasing God or doing that which truth and love had come forth into my surroundings.

Sure I wanted so much more. I want a new desk and new stuff but I needed to purge the nonsense…the baggage…the junk….

So I did.

I threw it all away…

I literally threw away stuff. It means less and less to me in light of all that I have lost this past month…

It’s time for a change….a transformation….

My stuff was silencing my “gift of gab” I love to connect with people through words spoken and written. I can talk for hours…I can… :-)

A clean slate means that it is God’s turn now to mold, shape, move and be glorified… and allow me to….

Be transformed.

 

896673_desert-flower_620  The desert and the parched land will be glad;
the wilderness will rejoice and blossom.
Like the crocus, 2 it will burst into bloom;
it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.
The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
the splendor of Carmel and Sharon;
they will see the glory of the LORD,
the splendor of our God.
3 Strengthen the feeble hands,
steady the knees that give way;
4 say to those with fearful hearts,
“Be strong, do not fear;
your God will come,
he will come with vengeance;
with divine retribution
he will come to save you.”
5 Then will the eyes of the blind be opened
and the ears of the deaf unstopped.
6 Then will the lame leap like a deer,
and the mute tongue shout for joy.
Water will gush forth in the wilderness
and streams in the desert.
7 The burning sand will become a pool,
the thirsty ground bubbling springs.
In the haunts where jackals once lay,
grass and reeds and papyrus will grow.
8 And a highway will be there;
it will be called the Way of Holiness;
it will be for those who walk on that Way.
The unclean will not journey on it;
wicked fools will not go about on it.
9 No lion will be there,
nor any ravenous beast;
they will not be found there.
But only the redeemed will walk there,
10 and those the LORD has rescued will return.
They will enter Zion with singing;
everlasting joy will crown their heads.
Gladness and joy will overtake them,
and sorrow and sighing will flee away.

Isaiah 35
